Messrs. MACMILLAN & Co.'s New List includes Vacation Tourists, Notes of Travel in 1861, published this day, edited by Francis Galton, and including St. Petersburg and Moscow, by the Rev. Archibald Weir; The Country of Schamyl, by William Marshall; The Amazon and Rio Madeira, by the Rev. Charles Young; &c.

Messrs. DEAN & SON, who were, we believe, the original inventors of Children's Moveable Books, are about to issue another entitled The Blondin, Leotard, and Female Blondin Moveable Book. The ingenious movements in this book will give our young friends an idea of the wonderful and daring performances (without danger to the performer) of the performers after whom the book is designated.

Messrs. DARTON & HODGE publish this day Part I. of Examples of London and Provincial Architecture of the Victorian Age, and Monthly Review of World's Architectural Progress (an Exhibition Number with Supplement gratis). The work is in an illuminated wrapper, and contains a tinted view of the entrance to the Exhibition building, lithographs of sections showing constructive details and interior decorations, printed in brilliant colours.

Messrs. HOULSTON & WRIGHT publish this day, small folio, illustrated, price One Penny, a new monthly periodical entitled The Happy Home.

story of domestic life, by Mrs. Few modern authors can boast

Messrs. JARROLD & SONS have just published an interesting Sewell, entitled Patience Hart's First Experience in Service. of as wide a circulation as Mrs. Sewell has been able to obtain for her stories. But what will our readers say to the fact that the issue of her ballads entitled Mother's Last Words and Our Father's Care conjointly has reached, as announced, the extraordinary number of 360,000? The question of what kind of facts may or may not be divulged or discoursed upon by literary and other gossippers in the public papers is a nice one; but it is very necessary that some sort of rules should be laid down and observed. There is the question of circulation of periodicals and other publications. Can a writer with propriety speculate, or state vague rumours on the subject of the sales which take place over a publisher's counter? Messrs. Smith, Elder, and Co. have, we observe, put forth a protest against a recent paragraph in the Literary Gazette, which, after alluding to the fabulous numbers occasionally mentioned over dinner-tables in connection with popular magazines, states on the authority of a "hardworking newsagent and magazinedealer, who knows to a nicety what the members of his trade use," that the circulation of the Cornhill is 30,000. Hardworking newsagents are, we suppose, too attentive to their own business to be well informed on that of other persons. At all events, Messrs. Smith, Elder, and Co. state positively that the average sale of each number of the magazine at the last time of making up accounts was upwards of 84,000 - the smallest number ever sold being 67,000, whilst some of the numbers have exceeded 100,000. This is conclusive; but our readers will, we think, agree that writers are not justified in thus compelling publishers in their own justification towards their advertisers to reveal the contents of their private ledgers to the world. If any publisher chooses to state such facts he is, of course, at liberty to do so. If he does not, no person can be well informed unless he has committed a breach of confidence; and if he is not well informed it is impossible to make statements without risk of doing serious injury.

A clearer case is that of the publication in the Illustrated News and the Times of the will of a Mr. Prince, whom both those journals designated as Brother Prince, notorious for his connection with the Agapemone. It appears that the Mr. Prince, whose will they published, was a simple clergyman, who had no connection whatever with Brother Prince; and friends and relatives justly complain of the pain and annoyance inflicted upon them by the wide dissemination of the erroneous statement. The question involved, however, is of more importance. It must be obvious to everyone on reflection, that wills are not laid open to the public at Doctors' Commons for the gratification of idle curiosity, but for the inspection of those whom they may concern. They necessarily contain much matter of a private character; indicate the family relations, and their pecuniary circumstances. If the idle and the curious are permitted to read thein on payment of a small fee as readily as the nearest relative of the deceased, it is only because clerks at Doctors' Commons have no talisman by which the idle and the curious may be distinguished from other folks. Are our public journals justified in taking advantage of this fact? We think not. The evil is one which can only be reached by public opinion. This power, however, has already done so much in enforcing the observance of good morals, that we do not despair of seeing the day when the publication of the wills of private persons will be as uncommon as those scandalous details of private life which were so common in the satirical papers of forty years ago.

Messrs. CHAMBERS & Co. have just published A Handy Guide to London, Illustrated, price One Shilling, which contains every kind of information useful to strangers in London at the present time. The author is Mr. G. Dodd. Besides general description, tables, lists, and miscellaneous information concerning public institutions and amusements, the Exhibition building, tables and lists concerning railways, omnibuses, cabs, telegraphs, &c., it gives good practical sketches of pleasant and easy excursions in the environs. It has also a full index, which shows at a glance that the information is of the latest kind. Such books are generally intended for visitors, but probably a resident Londoner would find it a curious experiment to take a copy in hand, and note how much which is useful to be known about the Metropolis he has yet to learn.

The Index, a new Weekly Journal of Politics, Literature, and News, which makes its first appearance this day, is remarkable as being the avowed organ in England of the Confederate States of America.

Leigh, Sotheby, & Co., May 2, 3, and 5, large collection of county histories, English monkish writers, illustrated works, and general literature; May 6-9, the choice library of the late Miss Drummond, of Bristol; May 12 and following days, the library of the late Sir F.
